Description: Located in the heart of downtown Bay Street, Athena cafe offers the authentic greek cuisine with a Bahamian flare. Not only you can find the traditional greek favorites here but also Bahamian delicacies such as conch, snapper, grouper and lobster! We are a true, family operated business that want everyone to feel like family as soon as they enter. Have a choice to sit at our cosy bar, our air conditioned dining room or the lively verandah.

There are great vegetarian options here and the service is very good. We had the strawberry lemonade, the Greek salad, the flaming cheese, and the pita and dip combination. We were very happy. The view is of Nassau Street from 2nd floor balcony. Be aware that they usually close shortly after sunset.

Visited on the Try Bahamian Food tour. The food was wonderful. I recommend the tour and Athena's Cafe.

We were on another cruise, with a stop in Nassau. We skipped the Breakfast buffet, looking forward to lunch at The Athena Cafe. I had the Lamb Gyro, and it was delicious. My wife had the Club sandwichand it was great, she could eat barely half of it. The view from the balcony is nice and relaxing. The owner came over to visit, as he usually does and we had a nice chat with him. We are planning on returning with the Grandkids next year. Even though we could eat lunch for free on the ship, it is worth the money.

Our group of four was wandering the streets, sightseeing and came across this restaurant. It was tucked away above a jewelry store (which apparently is related to the restaurant). The staff, as well as the man I assume was the owner, were super nice, friendly, without being pushy. We were in the mood for drinks and appetizers and sat in the upstairs outside seating. Great view of the street and the BEST hummus I've ever had. The menu was a little pricey, but from the food and service we experienced, the rest was likely worth it. Location is good - close to the cruise terminal and straw market. Great experience.

After checking out the straw market we were starving. This small Greek restaurant definitely satisfied our appetite. The owner was extremely funny and the food was great.
